The Consumer Electronics Association issued a specification for compatibility requirements for digital television (DTV) receivers and digital cable systems. The specification allows users to receive in-the-clear, premium and pay-per-view digital cable programming on their DTV receivers, as well as basic cable analog channels, without a set-top box. CEA also announces the R-8 engineering committee (Cable Compatibility).
